Aurora- A Ladybug is Love

For the Try It Out "T"day on Follow Your Heart we were challenged to use the colors pink, blue & green. Easy peasy! Love it!

I used one of the brand new Aurora 2 collection stamps-A Ladybug is Love. This set is designed by Victoria Case and is exclusive to SCACD. I have to tell you, one of my favorite things about Aurora is the butterfly that is always hovering around/with her. FABULOUS!

Anyway, back to my card:

After stamping Aurora in Momento ink, I went to my stash of paper to decide what I was going to use that worked with the color challenge. I found this fabulous piece with the flowers and hearts on it in addition to the matching pink grunge piece as part of the Basic Grey Sugar Rush collection. I then proceeded to color Aurora with my markers to match the patterned paper.

I felt she needed a bit of bling and gloss. I grabbed my Peridot Viva Decor Glitter Liner and blinged up her hat, shoes and of course the bow in the girl ladybug's hair. Isn't that a fabulous sparkle? And it doesn't rub off!!! Not loose glitter in my card storage or the envelope when I mail it! I then used the Diamond Glaze on her eyes, the shell at her waist, and the ladybug shells.

Once she was colored and decorated the assembly began. I used a sketch from another challenge as my inspiration point. I punched the flowers from the same Basic Grey pink pp as I used to mat the image. I inked the edges of everything and pulled out my Prima Jewels for the center of the flower. I think it gave just the right finishing touch!

I hope you enjoy my card! I would LOVE to see your creations with Aurora!! Be sure to link me!
